Following the unveiling of the Vantage earlier this morning, Aston Martin Racing has taken the wraps off the new Vantage GTE.
Developed alongside the road-going model, the Vantage GTE is a purpose-built race car which will compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship. The model has been designed for the GTE class and Aston Martin Racing has already logged more than 13,000 km (8,077 miles) during its development including a successful 30-hour run at the Spanish circuit of Navarra.
The car will be driven by an assortment of “highly experienced and successful” drivers including Darren Turner, Jonny Adam, Nicki Thiim, Marco Sørensen, and Alex Lynn.
According to Aston Martin Racing President David King, “Motorsport is fundamental to the DNA of Aston Martin and our commitment to the FIA World Endurance Championship is stronger than ever.” He added, “This is a golden era for GT racing and today’s launch of the new Vantage GTE will ensure that Aston Martin Racing remains at the forefront of the world’s greatest endurance series.”
